Eric Cantor, a leading Republican official in the U.S. House of Representatives, on Thursday lashed out at U.S. President Barack Obama's remarks about Israel at this week's nuclear security summit.
Cantor on Thursday lashed out at Obama's remarks, saying the U.S. administration is manufacturing fights with Israel and pandering to the Arab world.
Obama on Tuesday urged all countries, including Israel, to sign the international Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, or NPT.
"Whether we're talking about Israel or any other country, we think that becoming part of the NPT is important," Obama said. "And that, by the way, is not a new position. That's been a consistent position of the United States government, even prior to my administration."
Obama also said that unresolved conflicts, such as Arab-Israeli conflict, affects the United States.
Eric Cantor cosponsored legislation to cut off all U.S. taxpayer aid to the Palestinian Authority and another bill calling for an end to taxpayer aid to the Palestinians until they stop unauthorized excavations on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Responding to a claim by the State Department that the United States provides no direct aid to the Palestinian Authority, Cantor claimed that United States sends about US$75 million in aid annually to the Palestinian Authority, which is administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Cantor has also claimed that Congress approved a three-year package of US$400 million in aid for the Palestinian Authority in 2000. He has also introduced legislation to end aid to Palestinians.

Consider your source for the article, and that explains it already.
Try a source that would be totally unbiased in Middle East issues. Maybe hard to find, yet surely there are more possibilities than a news source in Israel. Maybe wait to see if the article appears in PressTV.ir?

Are you claiming Haaretz an Israeli news source is reporting Hoax information or did Cantor did not speak so or is Haaretz false reporting about Obama statements?
Israel is a democracy that has always made the sacrifices necessary for peace despite living under constant threats to their very existence.
The true barrier to ending the Mideast conflict is the widespread Palestinian refusal to accept and to live alongside Israel as a Jewish state.
While Israel continues its search for a reliable partner in peace, Palestinian terrorism is still celebrated in the West Bank and Gaza.
US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle earned $5.5 million (£3.6m) in 2009, mainly from book sales, according to the White House.
The couple have doubled their income since Mr Obama took office in January 2009, tax returns show.
